The Integral Mezzi Rigatoni of the Benedetto Cavalieri pasta factory are made only with blends of whole durum wheat from Italian organic crops. In particular, in these rigatoni the content of lysine remains intact, an essential amino acid that plays a fundamental role in the production of antibodies that fight diseases and is very important for the conservation and absorption of the right amount of calcium. The Wholemeal Mezzi Rigatoni particularly enhance game ragu, but are excellent with any type of condiment.

Since its foundation, Benedetto Cavalieri has focused on innovation and quality, thus using the most modern machines for kneading, kneading, pressing and drawing. To avoid the drying of the pasta in the street, as it happened in those years, it introduces a modern system, called the "Cirillo Method", which consists in drying the pasta in dedicated rooms, equipped with a hot water radiator and a large fan , whose times were marked by the experience of the pasta maker.

Benedetto Cavalieri pasta is renowned throughout the world for the rigorous selection of Italian durum wheat that grows in soils especially suited to the hills of Puglia and Basilicata; the wheat is grown without the massive and usual use of chemical fertilizers that increase yields at the expense of quality. It is also known for its "delicate" processing method which guarantees the complete preservation of the precious nutritional values of good durum wheat.
